FOR 2019 ALL 7TH AND 8TH GRADE PLAYERS MUST USE HIGH SCHOOL LEGAL STICKS.
6TH GRADE AND BELOW: May use the old type of stick but it must pass all lenght, pocket and ball release tests. The 4" shooting string rule will not be enforced.
Note for 2020, it is likely that all youth players will be required to have the new HS approved heads.
